The 1946 health issue, like the 1946 Peace issue which was also designed by
James Berry, focused on the returning armed forces after the end of the
Second World War and a return to peacetime activities. The soldier is
lifting the child over a stile and symbolically into an era of peace and
The scenery in the background is generic and does not
represent any specific location.
